Racetracks and Racecourses host high-prestige sporting events that attract crowds in their thousands all dressed up in their finest gear. But they can also make the ideal venue for a meeting or event.
With fully functional event spaces at the ready most of these style venues can accommodate all kinds of numbers of delegates. Whether you are looking for a private dinner for 8 which you can host in one of the boxes overlooking the course or a party for 150 which you could host in one of the many bar/restaurant spaces that the venues have to offer.
And, if you are looking for an incentive or a seasonal treat, delegates can enjoy a day of good food, hospitality and racing at a venue that thrives on entertaining clients.
There are many racecourse and racetracks to choose from across the country, from your larger options like Ascot Racecourse which has more than 300 meeting rooms and a total of 4000sqm of event space to the smaller, more local courses. Because racing events usually take place at the weekend, events can take advantage of the quieter times during the week and can enjoy the sense of exclusivity.
There is a lot of money being invested in these up and coming venues, a multi-million pound project is currently underway at Donington Park which sees the construction of a new grandstand with meeting rooms, Newbury Racecourse has invested more than £18million into the new Owners and Trainers event space and Hamilton Park Racecourse have an 118 bedroom ‘Hampton by Hilton’ hotel underway.
As these venues house a lot of outdoor space, not only do they usually benefit from on-site parking, they are great for team building events, especially venues like Mercedes-Benz World who can offer all sorts of motorised activities.
